About the presenter: 

Gigi Rosenberg won her first unofficial grant as a 14-year old when she convinced her parents to fork over the cash to buy 5 rolls of Super 8 Kodachrome film to shoot her first film. Today, she’s an author and coach to visual, literary, and performing artists, and entrepreneurs. Her book, The Artist’s Guide to Grant Writing (Watson-Guptill, 2010) is now in its second printing. For the latest, visit gigirosenberg.com
